Robert Altman’s early career

The Magic BondRobert Altman has died at 81.

He began his career working at Kansas City, Missouri’s famed industrial film factory, the Calvin Company. As one of the Archive’s knowledgeable posters, “Mr.,” states, he made a number of sponsored films before his first feature, The Delinquents.

The Magic Bond, his 1955 film for the Veterans of Foreign Wars, is downloadable from the Archive. Does the first sequence remind you of a certain movie about the Korean War?
